Out-of-state students may face difficulty in affording UNC

Of the 30,000 out-of-state residents who applied to UNC this year, only a handful will be granted admission, and even fewer will be offered a financial aid package. This roadblock has prevented thousands of potential out-of-state students from accepting their offer of admission, and the Office of Scholarships and Student Aid has its hands tied by North Carolina policies.  Full tuition cost in addition to room and board can cost upwards of $50,000 for out of state students attending UNC.
